This is a packet that contains a PowerPoint presentation on the life of Edgar Allan Poe. It contains just the basic information, a few pictures, and a link to a video clip. There is also a sheet to fill out during/after the presentation. Included in the unit is a fun activity called "Book-Covers". In this activity, students may take one of Poe's famous pieces and draw the cover of it for a book. This is an activity that my students love, they can be so creative. I use card stock for their final piece. The last part of the unit, is a newspaper article on Edgar Allan Poe. Students will use the information they learned from the video, PowerPoint,etc to complete the activity.
